This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 42; the forty-second edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "COLOR"

Thanks to BAT that I am atleast writing one piece in a month….else its been a writer’s block for a long time now J. Also, its been an even longer that I wrote some form of poetry, so choose to write a NONET this time. Read more about Nonet Here.

Before I started this post, I wanted to see what all did I post in BAT about. While I read, I felt that it has many times been a “story” but what I also got to know is that it’s going to be my seventh entry for BAT. I am so happy to have this theme for my 7th post as the world has just seven basic colors VIBGYOR..!!

Yellows and reds on a canvas white 
With hint of green and blue skies 
Twinning beauty and elegance 
Hills of daffodils and 
Violet tulips 
Bring alive life's 
Freshly cool 
With grace 
Blends color 
Into a bouquet 
That’s just pleasantly white 
Lustering presence until 
A droplet unwraps the beauty 
To a rainbow that’s an artist’ s dream

Along with this Nonet, I also painted the VIBGYOR today....Will post the pic of the painting in the next BAT...!!! Till then happy writing and enjoy reading..!!!

I loved the poem Yamini! Especially the second Nonet.
"Light with grace blends color artistically into a bouquet..." Beautifully articulated!
Thanks for the lovely poem and also for teaching me a new poetry form!
Cheers :D
